I loved this class! It was so fun and truly helped me learned about public speaking and appreciation for others. I recommend this course. Yes, its easy, but you truly learn more than that! Professor Miller can be extremely funny and blunt but I truly think he cares about the subject and simply wishes to see people improve in their ability to tell stories. Take this class!

I took Argumentation (Debate) with him and I really enjoyed it. It was nice having a small class; you really got to know other people in your group as well as other members of the class, and we all got excited to see a few people debate because of what we knew about their personalities. Miller seems dry, and I think I only saw him smile two times, but he's actually really funny- we just could never figure out if it was intentional or not. He's not exactly available; if you want to get a hold of him plan a couple days ahead, but he seems really caring once you actually start talking to him. He trains the whole class to say "I'm ___" before they make a remark, which is how he does grading, and by the end of the class whenever you hear someone introduce themselves you automatically reply, "Hi, _____" without thinking.
The debates are the only part of the class that involve real work; you get comments after it's over so it's best to do a good job, but everyone's good natured and they all have to go through it so it's not a big source of worry.
Grading is easy, and it's a fun class overall- expect your beliefs to be challenged. I recommend it.

Best professor at UCLA. Got an A+ in the class very fair final. Only like a 8 page outline he gives you ten weeks to come up with. The midterm is a seven minute speech where you get like three practice ones. He grades fair and his class was the best I had all quarter. Close knot class super friendly atmosphere. GO MILLER>

First off, I just want to encourage students to take the time out to review professors to help other students out!!!!!!!!!! Everyone want to use bruin walk but no one want to take the time out to keep bruin walk reviews UPDATED!!!! Anyway, Professor Miller is a great professor, his class is no joke and must be taken serious like any other class. His class consists of two presentation and a take home final and midterm. His presentations are not bad as long as you are prepared! His midterm and final come out to about 20pages (double spaced) it's not as difficult as it seem just take it serious. Good news he offer extra credits debates, where you go judge debates for about 8 hours..yes it's a long time but it's worth the assurance of your A. Judging the debates are actually fun and not hard at all.

Nice man (grandpa-like cute) who knows what he is talking about. He always has a sense of humor which always seems to relax the students. He is not a professor to constantly give you anxiety about the class work. He is willing to see you during office hours for help. On that note, Professor Miller is a great professor. I highly recommend him for any of his COMM courses.
